You Are My HAPPY... Art Journaling with Unscripted Sketches #219

It's mid week... {again} and I wanted to share my latest project using this week's Unscripted Sketches - sketch #219. This sketch was a bit of a challenge for a card and I wanted to use this "You Are My Happy" die cut embellishments from DCVW. I received this in a goody box from a crafty friend and decided it WOULD be in this week's project. So I made an art journal page instead. I found a scrap of patterned paper with the same coloring and punched the snowflakey circles with a Martha Stewart border punch and layered to mimick the sketch.

My husband and I went on a weekend getaway to the races in Daytona last weekend and this page is commemorating our time together. We both have very busy schedules and when time allows us to get in some quality time... we take full advantage of every minute.

The base was leftover red spray mist I picked up off my craft sheet; overstamped with dictionary page and chicken wire stamps from Viva Las VegaStamps!. I layered my die cut and punched pieces, ran all through my Xyron 510 sticker machine, and adhered - then set off for to doing some leisurely hand doodling... PURE FUN! I finished it off with a small photo from our weekend away {I get tons of arguments for taking pix TOO much - but this was a winner} doodled up to match and a "LOVE" button that just happened to be in my marker bag {adhered with my Xyron "X" sticker maker}. Perfecto!
